We’re back with another new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches and this week our sketch comes all the way from the land down under. Narelle Farrugia, our resident Artisan and floral queen, is our hostess this week and she has a good one for us. Take a look:
I just got a box of new goodies from the new catalog yesterday, so I knew I wanted to use something from it for the sketch. One of the items that made it into my cart at the last minute was the Monogram Messages stamp set. I didn’t have any current baby themed sets and this particular set looked very versatile for other occasions as well. Plus, the sample in the catalog totally sold me on it. When I saw this sketch, it reminded me of that sample so I decided to use it.
This card actually has lots of new things. I started by stamping the images with new colors — Bumblebee, Magenta Madness and Just Jade. I placed the focal panel on one of the new Square Vellum Doilies, which was placed on a square of a piece of paper from the Flowers for Every Season pack. All of this was placed on a piece of card stock run through the Big Shot using the new Dainty Diamonds embossing folder. This folder is incredible — I love the intricate detail.
We hope you’ll join us and create your own card using the sketch! We love to see what you make as we browse the gallery each week. Meanwhile, be sure to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for your inspiration.
Enjoy your Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!

Ok – these colors are amazing together! I love it. I wasn’t so keen on that stamp set until I saw your card. That is so sweet. I love it!
So pretty! This set is on my list and now I may have to add that embossing folder! Love the look!
This is so sweet….what a fun little set! I am (im)patiently awaiting some new goodies, and my doilies are one of them…but now I see I am going to need that EF as well!
What a fabulous use of colour Amy! I hadn’t even noticed that stamp set in the catalogue but you’ve sold me – oh and that gorgeous embossing folder is a ‘must have’ as well…! Vicky x

What a sweet baby card Amy! I love that monogram and the gorgeous embossed background! More things to add to my wish list!
Oh I love this and the new goodies you’ve used. I now think I need that embossing folder – it is a truly gorgeous background for your baby card.
